Zebra Lines Cake (Egg White)

I love this cake for the cottony soft texture. Often bakers will find themselves with egg white leftover, so what can we bake besides pavlova and macaron ( you may have more than these two being named )?  If you do not mind baking a cake, then this is one good option to clear those albumen sitting in your refrigerator.

Zebra Lines Cake (Egg White)

2 tbsp condensed milk ( I used 3 tbsp )

    • 我觉得前几层还容易,一到后面就比较困难,圆圈好像也变也小。我同意你的说法,看似简单,其实不容易。仔细一看我的还有进步的空间。我们—起加油!
